We are very excited to be hosting a neighbourhood party to celebrate all the stories, and local residents and creatives Clapham Park Creative has been working with since we started in 2018. It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to get together and we want this event to help us remember what it’s like to laugh, listen to music, and do fun things with neighbours.

Bring your neighbours, friends and family, and come have some fun with us!

GET INVOLVED — SELL YOUR ART, HOST AN ACTIVITY TABLE OR JOIN THE OPEN MIC

Makers/Creatives! Do you have handmade items you want to sell or an idea for a creative activity to host at the event. We are welcoming all to get involved and connect with new audiences.

Musicians/performers/creative teachers! Would you like to do a 20 minute taster on our ‘open mic’? Especially great if you want to advertise some upcoming workshops.

Local organisations! If you’d like to host an info table or leave brochures/flyers advertising local services, we’d be happy to accomodate you.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT IN THIS WORKSHOP?

This is a very relaxed, welcoming event. You can drop-in at any time and bring families, friends and neighbours. Weather permitting, part of the event will be held outside and in the gym of the Cube. If it rains, we will largely be outside with some marquees set-up in the garden.

WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?

The event is open to all ages and for everyone in Clapham Park and beyond to come see what we’ve been up to. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
